I want to know if I should go for an engine swap or just rebuild this engine and just build upon it.

Sell and buy faster car.

It'll save money and heartache.

iminhell can talk, he's spent a lot of effort on his Alky Fueled street Zetec.

I'll move this to the Zetec Performance section then, since you can find most of the engine info. short of forced induction in that area.

There's potential in that one, if you'd answered "SPI" the potential is quite limited.

Yeah, that's an OBX copy of the SVT header.

Don't know how that one fits myself, the SVT one needs the matching dipstick/tube to fit right.

(Typin' at the same time I see)

Which one would have a greater impact tho?
IDK, it'd depend on the primary pipe sizes. And also the prices too. What exhaust are you running? What else mods are you looking at? Cams & tune & a t/b ? Do you have a dogbone & sts? What suspesion are you running?

How much are you budgeting for this? Also, not a power adder but will make the car more fun to drive; suspension/tire upgrades. The car is never going to be fast (short of forced induction,) making it fun in the corners is where it will put a smile on your face

I'm just trying to get a list of things that I can get to add to the car so I can have more fun with it, I don't fully have a budget, just what I make at work

Start out w/ springs/dampers. The basic tune up parts, plugs, wires, fuel filter,air filter. Then go from there......

Speedway recyclers has an SVT header(used)for $110.00 shipped right now. You can use the extra money saved towards the other things that 1turbofocus mentioned.
